The Niels Bohr Institute is expanding its research activities in particle physics (http://www.nbi.ku.dk/english/research/particle-physics/) and invites applications for an Associate Professorship in Experimental Neutrino Physics & Astrophysics. The Associate Professor will join the department’s ‘Discovery Center’ (http://discoverycenter.nbi.ku.dk/) which is engaged with both accelerator & non-accelerator experiments for fundamental physics. In particular NBI is a member of the IceCube collaboration and of its proposed future extensions & upgrades (Gen-2/PINGU). This experiment has recently discovered high energy cosmic neutrinos and also made competitive measurements of neutrino oscillations using atmospheric neutrinos. The NBI IceCube Group (http://icecube.nbi.ku.dk/) includes both experimentalists and theorists, interested in astrophysical as well as particle physics issues relating to neutrinos.
The areas of particular interest for the experimental programme include development of Cherenkov light detectors, advanced analysis and reconstruction techniques and neutrino oscillation physics. However, outstanding applicants working in all areas of neutrino astroparticle physics will be considered.
Applicants are required to have university level teaching experience, documented teaching competencies and must be able to explain and reflect upon own teaching practice and portfolio. Formal pedagogical training or supervision equivalent to the University of Copenhagen teacher training programme for assistant professors is required.
Duties include the applicant’s own research, development of the field, assessment tasks, grant applications, and research management such as supervision and training of research fellows and other staff. The successful applicant must also teach, supervise, prepare and participate in examinations, and fulfill other tasks requested by the Department.
Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, original scientific production at an international level, including contributions to developments in their field, as well as their documented teaching qualifications. Managerial and out-reach qualifications of applicants including ability to attract external funding will also be considered. Internationally recognised excellence (e.g. invited presentations at major conferences) must be demonstrated.
Part of the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU), and among Europe’s top-ranking universities, the University of Copenhagen promotes research and teaching of the highest international standard. Rich in tradition and modern in outlook, the University gives students and staff the opportunity to cultivate their talent in an ambitious and informal environment. An effective organisation – with good working conditions and a collaborative work culture – creates the ideal framework for a successful academic career.
